Absolutely amazing. Say what you will about the Aussies but they've been doing something right ever since they joined Asia

Wow. That is big.  It will cost them a bit to attend, but in terms of testing yourself against top class opposition - priceless. Copa America is brutal, unlike Euro qualifiers, as there are very few "poor quality" teams.

Would they be going if they had to pay their own way? I imagine CONMEBOL will be footing the bill. 

Also, there's only a handful of poor (mainly tiny) European teams, EURO and WC qualifying in Europe can be very brutal. Just ask the Dutch and the Italians, to name a couple of recent examples. And surely Copa America won't be that brutal with the Aussies and an experimental Japanese side in it...

in this year's COA, Japan just got a 4-0 spanking from Chile in Sao Paulo.

This year's other invitational team Qatar managed to hold Paraguay to a 2-2 draw.

Okay not the Socceroos, but to wrap up the AFC invitational sides at this year's Copa America.

Qatar lose 0-2 to Messi & Co. Agüero with Argentina's 2nd.

Qatar 2 losses & a draw, and are out.

Japan play Ecuador in their final game tomorrow. Need a win to progress to the quarters.

Japan draw 1-1 with Ecuador, to finish with a loss and 2 draws. 

Miss out on quarters to Paraguay (both 3rd in their pools) on GD. Heavy 4-0 loss to Chile cost them.

Socceroos chance to have a crack next year.
